All in all this was a great book, though Mandie does display disobedience to her parents.
Adventure and trouble break out when thirteen-year-old Mandie Shaw returns to the Misses Heathwoods' school for girls in Asheville. The Misses Heathwoods are selling the school, but Mandie is afraid she won't like the new headmistress. Mandie wants her grandmother to buy the school, but her grandmother seems to be missing.
When school starts, Mandie finds herself in trouble all the time; but it's not her fault, so who is framing her?
The characters, including Mandie, are kind and loving to each other. Sometimes Mandie can be selfish, and she disobeys her authorities at times.
The Misses Heathwoods' school goes to church and so does Mandie's family, including her grandmother. There's talk of prayer and that God will answer prayer.

If you like mysteries then this is the book for you. This book was exciting and I enjoyed ever minute of it! Mandie is a kind Christian girl, but sometimes she makes mistakes, which she can fix in the end. Older readers may find the book boring, but it's an excellent book for its age group.
